Default 1.0-9625 does not recognize switched off monitor

First of all, thanks for the beta drivers, I think this is a step forward into a better quality software.
I'm just playing around with the 9625 and I found some strange behaviour, not experienced with the 8774.
Specifically, when booting the PC with the LCD panel off (from power switch), it seems the driver cannot get the EDID data and it defaults to CRT (LCD is DVI connected).
This causes an annoying "not DVI data" when switching on the display.
Restarting (from remote) X with int 3;init 5 solves the issue.
Note that 8774 is not affected by the problem, the PC can start with the LCD off, but the EDID data is read anyway.
This is the diff between starting X with the LCD on or off:

Now, I can immagine I'll be required to produce a nvidia-bug-report, apart from the problem of doing this without the display (remote I guess will not work), could someone please let me know which conditions are required? I mean should I report 9625 and 8774 with both display on and off? With which logverbose 5 or 6?
Thanks.

Well, sorry to bother you all for nothing.
After double check I discovered a monitor problem, maybe the EDID connection is faulty for some reason.

Sorry again.
